Students who transfer to Appalachian State University find support programs tailored to promote their success — including opportunities to connect with Faculty Transfer Mentors — through the university’s Office of Transfer Services.
This fall, 1,449 new transfer students — 1,230 on Appalachian’s main campus and 219 App State Online enrollees — joined the Mountaineer population. Some will take the initiative to connect with one of over 100 faculty mentors who have been trained by the Office of Transfer Services to understand the specific needs of transfer students and who will support their academic development.
The mentors, who are most often in the student’s area of study, aid the student in understanding the curriculum and coursework requirements, and provide guidance, support and referral to resources.
